We, the staff at AMK Counseling, support the movement of interrupting inequitable systems in our greater Chicago community. We are committed to continued activism, learning, listening, supporting and serving not only our individual, family and couples clients, but also our community at large. As a result, AMK is committed to extending services to under-resourced communities. AMK is able to do so by working in partnership with community organizations and by offering services to a broader population.
AMK offers scholarship and sliding scale slots to our existing clients when available. Additionally, in our commitment to serve and liberate, we have extended the reach of our services. AMK continues to be strategic and thoughtful about our partnerships, choosing organizations that are mission-based, grass-roots and led by people of color.
